RALLY 9AM, MARCH 11AM!
Protect Planned Parenthood from getting defunded! Republicans in Congress have finally unveiled their Obamacare repeal bill, which includes blocking Planned Parenthood from receiving Medicaid reimbursements — in a nutshell, DEFUNDING IT and DEPRIVING MILLIONS OF WOMEN from access to life-saving healthcare.
As stated on the Planned Parenthood website: “Of the more than 74 million people on Medicaid, nearly 17 million are non-elderly women who depend on it as their primary source of essential health care. … For these women, Medicaid makes the difference between access to basic care — or doing without.”
One out of every three Planned Parenthood patients lives in California, and $260 million in funding to Planned Parenthood is at risk — which could mean millions of women losing access to preventative health care services like STD/HIV testing and life-saving cancer screenings.
JOIN US to SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE BILL — and DEMAND that the state of California PLEDGE TO COVER THE FUNDING GAP CREATED BY THE BILL so that Planned Parenthood can continue serving its patients!
Share wide! Let’s make our voices heard!
